Based on an illustration by Arthur Rackham from teh fairy tale "Sweetheart Roland", this is my version of the infamous fairy godmother we are always hearing about. Who said she was old?

We recently got a scanner, so now I can hopefully put up work in higher quality than my previous ones... I'm excited too. :)

Thank you! Yes, it's a pretty good book if you like fairy tales... it's a standard collection book, with about sixty fairy tales in it, and pictures by probably one of the greatest illustrators ever! It's old, but it's definitely worth looking into. :) Thank you!

Thank you for your kind words! I would like Teenink to have a reputation of being really top-class stuff, so I tried really hard to make it turn out this way.
